Tsugaru region of Aomori Prefecture is in the northernmost reaches of Honshu, Japan’s largest island, and covered with snow during most of the year. The photographer Sho Shibata was born in Tsugaru and has been living in this place. He rejects superficial beauty and his photographs depict Tsugaru beyond it. His works, which record ever-changing scenery and cultures of his homeland, can also be seen as records of his existence.
